ABOUT THE GLOBAL GOALS
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Goals for a better world by 2030. These Goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and address the urgency of climate change.
Guided by the Goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone.
The Global Goals are also known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Learn more about the 17 Goals here.
THE WOMEN OF THE WORLD IN ACTION
All over the world actions are taken to make our planet more sustainable. And guided by the SDGs the GGWCup invites women from all walks of life, onto the football pitch to play and advocate for the Goals that are most invigorating for them, for their families, and community.
The all-women teams qualify to play in the world cup by advocating for one of the 17 Global Goals and showcase concrete ideas and examples on how they will undertake their action and achieve impact. In the tournament it is not about being the best teams in the world. It is being the best teams for the world.
At each tournament GGWCup proudly partner with a local host and recruit a number of companies, grassroot organizations, educational institutions etc.
The Global Goals World Cup is founded by Majken Gilmartin and Rikke Rønholt.
